Bellator 194 goes down Friday night, and you can catch all the preliminary card action right here on Cageside Press!
Bellator 194 went down Friday night, live from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. The main event saw the return of the Bellator World Heavyweight Grand Prix, with Matt Mitrione taking on Roy Nelson. ‘Big Country’ held a win over Mitrione from back in the pair’s UFC days, but all these years later, would history repeat itself? Or was ‘Meathead’ a more improved fighter than the athlete we saw back then?
Also on the card, a pair of boxing champions threw down when Heather Hardy took on Ana Julaton. The fight marked the first of a multi-sport, back-to-back duel, with a boxing match planned for later in the year.
Before all that, however, the preliminary card got underway, with the fights streaming online. Check those out right here on Cageside Press come fight time, starting at 7PM ET! And don’t forget to check out full coverage from the event, which you can find in our Bellator 194 archive.
